WCA has recently opened additional membership service centres to further enhance its network relations.
As of 22 September, WCA’s new offices in Dubai, New Delhi and the Ivory Coast are operational. Plans call for a new facility in Shenzhen, China to open in early 2018.
The new service centers join already-established regional WCA facilities in Bangkok, Miami, Mumbai, Shanghai, Istanbul, London, and Amsterdam.
WCA’s founder and chairman, David Yokeum says: “These new offices help round out WCA’s global reach and allow us to best service the complex needs of our members while promoting their global businesses in an increasingly competitive market.
“Every WCA regional office is directed by highly professional staff with many years’ experience in the cargo transportation industry.”
WCA says growth in personnel and facilities mirrors its trend of member investment; offering innovative solutions to the SME freight forwarding community.
WCA has also acquired a stake in FreightSnap, a freight-dimensioning company, as well as developed an international LCL online marketplace called Consol2xChange.
WCA executive vice president, Mark Mairowitz adds: “WCA is also heavily focussed on developing innovative products, solutions and partnerships within the rapidly growing cross-border e-commerce sector.
“With the launch of the world’s first e-commerce logistics network back in 2016, membership has grown rapidly. Our expansion efforts are partially in response to nearly 500 member-agent locations, worldwide.”
Alongside the opening of new offices in Dubai, New Delhi and the Ivory Coast, WCA also broadened its North American presence by expanding its regional office in South Florida.
WCA says recent management additions have permitted itto accelerate the development of its new tools and solutions; tools designed to elevate independent and regional freight forwarders and to help them gain a competitive edge against multinational logistics providers.
